Relevance of Buddhism for business management
Buddhism has its practical focus on happiness and communal harmony in this lifetime. It has many solutions to offer to today's business world, which is often full of confusion and difficulty. The alleviation of suffering is the basis of the Buddha's first teaching, the Four Noble Truths. These noble truths say that suffering exists everywhere, that it has a cause, that it can be cured, and that there is a remedy in the practices of balance and awareness. How does this idea of suffering apply to businesses? Businesses suffer in much the same way that people do. This is the area of discussion of this paper.
